This is a large part not too gfar from city centre, and it has history. Good for a stroll in good weather in Autumn.

Visit the parks... Away from Beijing norm and enjoy nature, people, and culture... Entrance fee for parks and varies during the time of year... I have found seniors are free, depending on ticket agent. Only residents and not tourist... Bottom line again - Beihai park is north of Forbidden City and a great walk around the lake. Also, you can... More

After visiting the crowded forbidden City we enjoyed a very relaxed walk through this fabulous park and felt the nice and peaceful atmosphere.

Super to be here, have been here several times. Great when you are in a big city as Beijing to get out in the Park. Very quiet and special to us.

Strolling around cities can be one of my favorite activities and this is a great place to do it. The area has preserved some of the look of 'old' Beijing and is a really lovely area with nice landscaping and a peaceful vibe.

Beihai park is a must see point when you first are in Beijing, the white pagoda and the trip around the lake is great.

Hey my first visit here was back in Aug 2011 when the weather was HUMID AND HOT THOUGH IT DRIZZLED) There are kiosks in which you can pay 30 RMB to try the emperor/empress outfit! I managed to try and took many snazzy photos) When the flowers blossom in Apr and May, that is the BEST TIME TO VISIT BEIHAI!... More

Recommended by a friend who lives in Beijing.A calm oasis in the middle of the city; good to get some down time in the city. Magnificent views from top of temple.

Very pretty and worth taking a walk through alongside the lake. The Behai North metro stop is just across the road so easy to get to. There is a lookout which you can climb to and there are activities going on all around you. Cool place to hang out.

Beihai Park surrounds Beihai lake, and is a delight in all seasons. Jade Island is worth the climb for the views. There are many wondrous historic buildings at the northern end, and the Round City is a castle in the south. Leaving the Forbidden City, take a walk through this park to Beihai North Subway. You won't regret it.
